Since its inception, the Gold Philharmonic has retained a depiction of the great pipe organ in the Vienna Musikverein’s Golden Hall on the obverse and an array of instruments, including the cello, violin, harp, Vienna horn and bassoon, on the reverse. Gold Philharmonic coins come in a variety of sizes, including 1/25 oz, 1/10 oz, 1/4 oz, 1/2 oz and 1 oz Gold coins.
On February 1, 2008, a 1 oz Silver version of the coin was issued. The Silver Philharmonics feature the same designs found on the Gold Philharmonics and are made of .999 fine Silver.

Why does the price of these 2009 Gold coins keep changing?
When observing the price of this 20th Anniversary Gold Philharmonic, you will notice that price changes throughout the day and night. Unlike stocks, which have official trading hours and closing prices, Gold is traded 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and this constant trading is what creates the fluctuations in the Gold spot price per ounce. No one can buy Gold coins at the Gold spot price because that is the cost for raw Gold. Instead, Gold coin prices include a premium above the Gold spot price to cover the cost of fabrication, distribution, a minimal dealer fee and any numismatic or collector value, which takes into account factors such as the scarcity, quality and historic value of the Gold coin.
